CPLP Exam: Plan

Plan (For the Knowledge Exam)

How should I determine the best study plan?

Let’s focus on the knowledge exam. Successful CPLP candidates create personalized study plans in order to pass the CPLP exam. Before putting your study plan together, take some time for the following:

  • Study the ATD Learning System. This resource covers each Area of Expertise (AOE) plus Global Mindset in a Chapter format. Each Chapter includes several Knowledge Areas. Each Knowledge Area is a critical competency for CPLPs and is based on the ATD Competency Model.
  • Explore the different Preparing for the CPLP programs that serve as an extension of your individual preparation. Especially if there are some content areas with which you are not as familiar/comfortable, consider supplementing your study approach with these preparatory programs.
  • Think about how you typically tackle something new that you need to learn. Do you like to focus just on the areas you know the least about? Do you prefer working in groups? Do you dive into information in a deep, thorough way? Determine your learning preferences and what study options are right for you. 

Now, open the Developing Your CPLP Study Plan worksheet. This worksheet will take you through a step-by-step process to draft a personalized study plan. Use this study plan template to create your personalized study plan.
